Pheathers – Lovebirds

I love to take morning walks. This week when I opened the door I immediately saw the silhouette of two large lovebirds on a distant tree. I grabbed my camera and actually jogged toward them, intent on getting a photograph before they flew away. I was sure they must be a pair of eagles. We have spotted one flying high overhead in our vicinity more than once. Perhaps the lone eagle had found a mate.

By the time I neared the tree where they roosted, I was a bit out of breath, but able to zoom in with my camera and check out the photo in the viewfinder. Oh, the pain of it! I was out of breath and wildly disheveled just to get a picture of a pair of old turkey buzzards.

Oh well, I guess buzzards can be lovebirds too. They are very prolific in this area. There is usually not a day goes by that I don’t see a few gracefully circling high in the air. Maybe next time I’ll be able to capture that elusive image of our neighborhood eagle. For now, I’ll have to enjoy the buzzards.

This post is part of Skywatch Friday.

      They are one of the most graceful birds, but oh my, that face…I guess it was buzzard love though…they seemed so compatible and happy on their branch.

    No matter how they look
    They love just like me and like you!”
    Okay, hardly deathless prose, not even close, but I couldn’t help myself. Please forgive me. I can’t help thinking those two could be a mommy buzzard and a daddy buzzard, soon to produce an egg-full of baby buzzard.

      Hi Dunelight, No, I am blessed to live near Longwood Gardens, about an hour away from my home. Every March they have gorgeous blue poppies. They truly do reflect the color of the sky. One of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. If you contact them, they might be able to give you some tips. They are very hands-on with helping gardeners grow their best gardens. Thaks so much for visiting the blog.
